High Side is a fun, flowy descent connecting the bottom of See Colours and Puke towards the bottom of Highline/top of Farside. Predominately benchcut, but with a few natural bits, this trail will leave you with a smile on your face.

Access Info

Best riding as the end of see colours and puke from the Lower Babylon connector, or climb Farside and Cheakamus Lake road to the Crater Rim lookout parking area and climb up See Colours and Puke for 10 minutes or so and look for High Side on the left.

 I actually found this trail to be more technically challenging than SCAP, despite being blue rated it felt like a black in spots. Good and challenging for sure with some steep rooty drop offs and tight switchbacks up top leading to flowy fun down lower. Well worth the ride up no matter where you are accessing from.
